Hair loss is a common condition that affects millions of people around the world. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, medical conditions, and certain medications. While there are many options available to help address hair loss, one of the most effective and long-lasting solutions is hair transplantation.
At Concord Hair Restoration, we understand the importance of creating natural-looking hairlines that are custom-designed to suit each individual’s age and personal style.
Our team of highly skilled and experienced hair transplant surgeons are experts in the latest techniques and technologies to ensure that your hairline is not only restored but also looks as natural as possible. We use the most advanced FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique to create a hairline that is age appropriate and tailored to your individual needs.

At Concord Hair Restoration, we understand that natural hairlines are not perfectly symmetrical. That’s why our team of experts focuses on creating natural-looking results that mimic the subtle imperfections and variations found in real hair. Our surgeons are skilled in creating hairlines that appear natural and age-appropriate, taking into account the patient’s face shape, hair type, and individual preferences. By paying close attention to these details, we are able to create a hairline that not only restores the appearance of a full head of hair but also looks like it’s been there all along. Our goal is always to deliver a natural-looking, custom-designed hairline that will leave you feeling confident and looking your best.
What is Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that involves transplanting hair follicles from one part of the body, known as the “donor site”, to the area of the scalp that is thinning or balding, known as the “recipient site”. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and typically takes several hours to complete.
The Different Types of Hair Transplantation
There are two main types of hair transplantation: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
FUT involves removing a strip of hair-bearing skin from the back of the head and then separating the individual hair follicles from the strip. These follicles are then transplanted to the recipient site. FUT leaves a linear scar on the back of the head, which can be covered by the remaining hair.
FUE, on the other hand, involves removing individual hair follicles directly from the donor site using a small punch tool. These follicles are then transplanted to the recipient site. FUE does not leave a linear scar, but rather small dots where the follicles were removed.
How to Choose the Right Hair Transplantation Method
The choice of which method to use will depend on a number of factors, including the patient’s specific needs, the amount of hair loss, and the patient’s budget.
FUT is typically recommended for patients who have a significant amount of hair loss, as it allows for the transplantation of a larger number of hair follicles in a single procedure. FUE, on the other hand, is better suited for patients who have a smaller area of hair loss or who want to avoid a linear scar.
Preparing for Hair Transplantation
Before undergoing hair transplantation, it is important to have a consultation with a qualified hair transplant surgeon. During the consultation, the surgeon will evaluate your hair loss and discuss your desired outcomes. They will also discuss any medical conditions you may have, as well as any medications you are taking.
It is also important to stop smoking and avoid any blood-thinning medications for at least two weeks prior to the procedure.
The Hair Transplantation Procedure
The hair transplantation procedure itself typically takes several hours to complete. During the procedure, the surgeon will remove hair follicles from the donor site and then transplant them to the recipient site.
After the procedure, the transplanted hair will fall out within the first two weeks. However, new hair growth will begin within three to four months and will continue to grow for the next several months.
NeoGraft is a specific brand of automated hair transplantation device. It uses a technique called “follicular unit extraction” (FUE) to harvest individual hair follicles from the back of the scalp (the “donor area”) and transplant them to the thinning or balding areas of the scalp (the “recipient area”). The procedure is minimally invasive and typically requires no stitches or linear scarring. It aims to give the patient a natural-looking hairline with minimal discomfort.
The Recovery Process
After the procedure, it is important to follow the surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully. This may include taking antibiotics to prevent infection, as well as pain medication to manage any discomfort.
The transplanted hair will begin to grow within three to four months, and the new growth will continue for the next several months.
The Benefits of Hair Transplantation
Hair transplantation can have a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem and confidence. It can also help to improve a person’s appearance and overall quality of life.
Additionally, hair transplantation is a long-lasting solution for hair loss. Unlike other treatments such as topical medications and laser therapy, hair transplantation results are permanent.
Potential Risks and Complications
Like any surgical procedure, hair transplantation does carry some risks and potential complications. These may include bleeding, infection, and scarring. Additionally, there is a slight risk of nerve damage, which can result in numbness or tingling in the scalp.
It is important to discuss any potential risks and complications with a qualified hair transplant surgeon before undergoing the procedure.
Hair transplantation is a highly effective solution for hair loss that can help to restore a person’s hairline and improve their appearance. With the right preparation and care, the procedure can be performed safely and with minimal risk of complications.
It is important to consult with a qualified hair transplant surgeon to determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs. With their expertise and guidance, you can design your dream hairline and restore your confidence.
